5 Tips for Security & Home Automation on Valentine’s Day

On the most romantic day of the year, Owen Security Solutions wants to offer five tips on using your home’s security system features to ensure things go as smooth as the pickup lines that got you your first date!

With the touch of a button, your home security system and automation capabilities protect your family and loved ones from intruders and interruptions while spending this holiday together.

Set the Mood

One of the easiest ways to help deter burglars is to make your home appear occupied. Setting timers and schedules to control both outdoor and indoor lights not only help your home appear occupied, but also active. Try scheduling your lights to activate at slightly different times each day; this makes it more difficult for potential burglars to determine your family’s schedule or routine.

Easily prepare for your Valentine’s arrival using ONE mobile app to brighten the scene for a big surprise or set the mood for movie night.

Warm Things Up

Adjust your home’s temperature before you arrive using your security system’s mobile app and interactive thermostat. No one likes coming home to a chilly house or, even worse, moving from the most comfortable spot on the couch to adjust the thermostat. 

Don’t Miss a Thing

Your home’s video surveillance equipment enables you to keep an eye on your home and it’s surroundings from anywhere! Quickly and easily monitor your video surveillance through your desktop, tablet, or phone and know that you’re returning to a safe space.

Lock it Down

Using the home automation features is not only smart, but also quite impressive to many unfamiliar with the system! With the tap of a button on your mobile device, your system can send you a motion-detected video alert of the visitor at your door, enable two-way voice communication, and allow you unlock your home’s door for special deliveries or an anxious date!

Enjoy the Peace

The last thing you would want to ruin Valentine’s Day with your loved ones is a break-in. Be sure to arm your home’s security system when everyone is safe in the home, then sit back and enjoy peace of mind.
